Canada’s cross country racers thrived in a second straight weekend of high paced, tactical racing in California, taking wins in three races at the Vail Lake US cup and finishing on the podium in many more.

Vail Lake US Cup Short Track XC

Juliette Larose Gingras landed the first win for the Canadian contingent. The first-year junior was the fastest in a tactical jr. women’s Short Track XC race on Friday, finishing ahead of Alexis Bobbitt and Gabrielle Richardson. Fellow Quebec rider Laurence Levesque was close behind in sixth.

Leandré Bouchard added another win to the weekend, soloing off the front of the pro men’s STXC event. He was followed by six other Canadians in the top nine finishers at Vail lake, in a show of force by the visiting athletes. Jose Gerardo Ulloa Arevalo of Mexico was second, followed by US STXC champion Christopher Blevins. Then Peter Disera led a string of six Canucks, with Andrew L’Esperance, Quinton Disera, Carter Woods, Raphael Auclair, and Gunnar Holmgren placing fourth through ninth.

In the Women’s STXC, Haley Smith was fourth, Sandra Walter eighth, and Vancouver Island junior Emilly Johnston, racing up with the pro women, 12th.

The Junior Men added more STXC speed, led by Vincent Thiboutot on the podium in third. Charles-Antoine St-Onge was one second behind in fourth, joined by Jeremie La Grenade in seventh, Kieran Nilsen in eighth, Hamish Graham in ninth and Jakob Yells in tenth.

Vail Lake US Cup Cross Country

Cumberland, B.C.’s Carter Woods added a second straight US Cup XCO victory in the junior men’s race on Sunday. Like he did a week earlier at Bonnelli Park, Woods soloed off the front to cross the finish line alone in Vail Lake. Markus Kaad Hueur of Denmark was the closest rider to Woods in second, 1:23 back.

Hamish Graham, also from the Comox Valley, finished seventh, one spot ahead of Charles-Antoin St-Onge of St-Denis-de-Brompton, Quebec. Vincent Thiboutot (13th), Kieran Nilsen (14th), Jeremie La Grenade (16th) and Xavier Roy (19th) made for seven Canadian’s in the top-20.

In the junior women’s race, Comox, B.C.’s Emilly Johnston finished just one second behind Sophie Heby Pedersen of Denmark. Johnston was joined in the top-10 by Juliette Larose Gingras (7th) and Laurence Levesque (8th)

In the pro men’s race, the podium was a mostly Canadian affair. Christopher Blevins took the top step, but Peter Disera followed in second, Andrew L’Esperance third, and Leandre Bouchard fourth. Quinton Disera, younger brother of Peter, finished eighth.

Haley Smith added another podium for Canada, finishing third in the pro women’s race behind world champion Kate Courtney and Boulder, Colo.’s Erin Huck. Sandra Walter finished in seventh, and Laurie Arseneault eighth.
